Let us help you bring your dream home to life. With our design expertise, a melding of design principles, practical use of your section, light, space and your ideas, we look forward to working closely with you on this exciting journey. If you are having difficulty getting started, here are some practical hints to get you on your way.
Use Pinterest, Trendsideas, or a good old fashioned scrapbook. Break it into living spaces, sleeping spaces, kitchen, bathroom, outside living. Add areas for articles & pictures of furniture you love, a roof style you like, a pool area you can almost see yourself in. Lights, staircases, exterior finishes, floor coverings, room layout – absolutely everything that takes your fancy. Sometimes when you’re designing or even at the finishing stage of your new home, you will get sidetracked or swept up in new ideas. Take stock – and a deep breath! – and open your scrapbook. The theme which you created initially will leap out and serve to re-focus you.
Peruse architectural websites, look for structural features, types of cladding, rooflines, fireplaces and more, and show your Landmark Homes designer pictures of materials you like.
Don’t worry that you have contrasting ideas to the rest of the family – we are well versed in interpreting them and in fact, find that the more discussion you have around your new design, the more ideas there are to draw on.
Visit your section at different times of the day, and spend time in different areas of it. While practicalities such as drainage, access to services, day lighting can and do influence where your home is positioned, by having a feel for the land and how it relates to neighbouring properties, you will be able to give consideration to positioning rooms and outdoor living spaces to work well for your lifestyle.
It is really important to talk to your local Landmark Homes team early in your building journey. Collaboration throughout the process is crucial. Our team members are knowledgeable, friendly and are professionals who will ensure we partner with you throughout, delivering you a home building experience that is enjoyable.
